Yorkshire champion Black Dyke is to head to Scotland next month to perform at the Perth Festival of Arts.
The concert at Perth Concert Hall on Saturday 28th May will bring to a close the 50th anniversary celebrations of a festival that has become one of the most popular and critically acclaimed in Scotland.
12 day event
The 12-day event, which covers all aspects of the arts, runs from 18th May, with the city hosting 40 events and concerts across various cultural venues and churches.
It includes performances from the likes of Jools Holland and the BBC Big Band to Scottish Opera, drama, comedy and the visual arts as well as showcasing emerging talent.
A spokesperson told 4BR: "Having announced our star-studded programme last month, the Festival had to find a replacement concert for a Russian orchestra at short notice.
We were therefore thrilled when the Black Dyke Band agreed to bring a celebratory programme that would close the Festival's Anniversary Year in style."
Festival Vice Chairman and member of Perthshire Brass, Craig Dennis added: "We are grateful to Prof Childs for agreeing to bring the band to Perth. Black Dyke has such a great following in Scotland, so this will be a highly-anticipated return."
